About Me

Note: I can only plan to have couchsurfers a couple of weeks ahead in time.

I'm a danish organic farmer, with specialty in co-op market gardening from work experience in England, and experience with growing coffee in the Nicaraguan jungle, and milking cows in Iceland.
I'm currently hoping to start a production of grain and flour for bread in a nearby ecovillage.

IMPORTANT
I live in a tiny house that I built myself in a small garden near Århus. From here I can do my hobbies such as drawing, painting, spinning yarn, knitting, gardening, enjoying concerts, rollerskating and climbing. I live semi-primitively with no hot water and no shower. I cook in a shed, and use a compost toilet. These things are good enough for me, so I hope they can be good enough for travellers.
On a positive note, this place means I get to have my beautiful garden but still being just a bicycle ride away from the city center.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I travel I enjoy to meet people and learn about life in a different country, when I'm at home I enjoy meeting new people and show them around my city.

Interests

I've just started bouldering and top-rope climbing in the last 6 months! More than happy to connect with other climbers anywhere!

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently in a mood where I only read nordic authors from the 50's and 60's

I'm a broadminded music fan and can enjoy almost all genres - at home I listen to a lot of reggae, when I'm a DJ it's usually reggaeton and dancehall. When I go out I enjoy techno and sometimes house.
Generally not a fan of trap though...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Complete uprootment of my life when I needed it the most. To this day I still can't explain how I did it, but everything is shaped by this decision some years ago.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always happy to share my thoughts on the future of sustainable agriculture, including it's potential to create healthier food, safer jobs, more robust food supply, and community in the countryside.

Apart from that I am always happy to share, learn and teach within my hobbies, or maybe get new ones!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm happy with anything to do with cooking and helping with your house plants, farm animals, or gardening.
